O Me of Little Faith


Friday Miscellany

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s been an eventful week here at the blog, thanks to the naughty words and romance novels and worship discussion. Which is a weird combination of things, starting the week with pee-poop-panties and ending it with a more serious topic. Anyway, thanks to those of you who participated in all the worship-related conversation. It was fun.

Now, some random stuff for your weekend.

1. Back in August, I did an interview with the gang at Rethink Monthly about my Pocket Guide books, which also ended up discussing the whole Michael Jackson/Heaven/Daily Beast brouhaha and, for some odd reason, Sasquatch. Which is to say, it was an entertaining conversation. If you want to know about the idea behind the Pocket Guides and my thoughts on making readers mad, then give it a listen. (Not sure why the podcast has just now hit the airwaves.)

2. Discovered this week the awesomeness of My Life is Average. You need to discover it, too. Sample entry: Yesterday when I went into the bathroom stall, written on the wall beside me was,”If you watch jaws backwards its about a huge shark that throws up so many people that they need to open a beach.” I laughed hysterically in the stall. I hope nobody heard. MLIA

3. This week featured the rise and fall (but possible resurrection?) of ChristianChirp, a Twitter alternative for Christians. I’m hoping most of my readers will realize how silly the idea is. If not, you should read Kevin Hendricks’ recap of it. Good one, Kevin. Bad one, Christian Chirp.

4. Leave it to Internet Monk to write one of the best seize-the-day posts I’ve ever read, without actually using any clichéd carpe diem language. “There’s always a day before.” Devastating and inspiring. Live this weekend and be glad in it.

5. Relevant Magazine is holding a Pocket Guide to Sainthood-related contest. Submit your own saint-and-patronage and you might win a $100 gift card. The Great Relevant Saint-Off.

6. Speaking of that, have you purchase Pocket Guide to the Afterlife, Pocket Guide to the Bible, or Pocket Guide to Sainthood yet? You should. Then you should review it on Amazon. But don’t take my word for it. Take Nicole Wick’s.

I’m out. Have a good weekend. See you next week.

Oh my word, My Life is Average is HILARIOUS. This is my favorite so far:Today, I let my cat outside for the first time in a while. He usually comes back a little while later with a mouse or bird. Instead, he came back with a fully cooked lobster. It's good to know that my cat has class. MLIA

My life is average is such a wonderful time waster. As for christian chirp….at least they've got rid of the embarrassing message off their front page about how it was people persecuting them. Its not persecution if people are going after you because what you have done is so unbearably lame and unoriginal it makes their heads hurt. That's justice.

Hey Jason, could you do a 'pocket guide' about the Trinity? I loved what you had to say about heaven and hell and I'm curious to see what you find when comparing what people believe about the Trinity today and what the Bible actually says about it. Thanks!DanCain at gmail.com

Dan:Not sure there's enough culturally to do a whole book about the Trinity, but it's definitely one of those doctrines that has a very interesting back story.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
